A Professional Can Help You Feel Comfortable

Having a professional portrait photographer handle your session can help take away some of the stress that comes with capturing memorable moments. They will provide guidance throughout the entire process so that you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Photographers also come equipped with high-quality equipment and backgrounds so that they can create stunning images that will last a lifetime.

Grow Your Self-Esteem

A portrait session can help boost your self-esteem by providing an opportunity to capture the best version of yourself and celebrate who you are today. During the session, you have control over how you want to look and present yourself, which can help raise your confidence and make you feel more self-assured. Additionally, seeing yourself in beautiful photography can remind you of the unique beauty, talents, and inner qualities that make up the real you.

See Yourself In A New Light

Portrait photography is all about capturing who you are as an individual. It allows for appreciation of both physical traits and inner qualities such as strength, resilience, and courage. Having these captured in photographs allows them to be remembered forever, as well as shared with loved ones. Not only does this help remind us of our unique physical characteristics, but it also shows us our inner qualities, which in turn boosts our self-confidence even more.

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of the group photo shoot. For those that are new to this, a group photo shoot is basically any number of photographers and a model or models taking photographs over timed intervals. From the perspective of the photographer it’s often difficult because there are so many people around it’s often difficult to connect with the model let alone tell your own story on camera. From the model’s perspective it’s hit and miss as to how good the results are and most participant photographers can be somewhat demanding trying to get the most from their few minutes of time.

However, from time to time it’s possible to get some great results from even a few simple snapshots. It just takes more time and more effort and in some cases you may walk away with nothing that you’re really happy with. Some recent examples of captures that I actually like include:

As an organization focused on both the business and creative side of photography, it was important for to have an environment that would allow both business and creative tendencies to flourish. As part of that, we’ve established an studio presence in downtown San Jose that offers an environment to create images that would be impossible to create in the traditional studio environment.

Located on the 13th floor of an historic Bank of America building, the attic studio maintains the rustic charm that one would expect in an attic while offering all the modern conveniences needed to capture quality images and video. From professional and natural lighting to top-of-the-line camera equipment, the attic studio offers all the modern conveniences with street-sense charm. Over 2000 square feet of space, including a fully appointed dressing room, this space is a model’s delight. And as with everything we do, the goal of maintaining this space will always be to continue the tradition of providing quality work with creative value.

See below for some pictures of the space; to help you imagine what you might be able to do for your project. As you look at the commercial/rustic design of this attic space, keep in mind that some natural light from windows and skylights is supplemented by storbes and LEDs that are combined with backdrops and drapes to create traditional studio images as well as green-screen video on our HD equipment.
